Follow Friday and Blog Hop - Sept. 3rd

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View. Head on over there to check out this week's featured blog. This week's question is:

What is your favorite brick and mortar bookstore?

I'll admit, I'm a Barnes and Noble girl. There are a few other little bookstores around where I live, but there's a huge B&N 20 minutes from my house that has a cafe in it and I love going there. The smell of coffee, pastries, and's fabulous. I could disappear in there for hours.
Book Blogger Hop

The Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books. This week's question is:

Do you judge a book by its cover?

My answer is yes, I do, but it's mostly when I'm looking around online or in a bookstore for something new. If I hear about the book first, then I like to see how the cover looks compared to what I've heard about the story, but it's not as...influential. But I love book covers, so they definitely play a part in what books catch my attention and which ones I want to know more about. But, I will say that I've read plenty of books that were fabulous that had lack luster covers, so I know to not let it sway me too much.


  1. Hi, I'm a new follower thru the Blogger Hop. Have a great weekend.

  2. Hoppin' by from FF to say hello. --Have a good Labor Day weekend!


  3. Hi :) I'm the same when I'm scanning the shelf for new books. There have been times I've put things back only to months later buy the book. I guess it depends on the mood I'm in.

  7. Hopping through! I like the cover of what you are reading now.... it makes me feel cold actually. I'll have to add that book to my list and see what its about!

  8. I'm stopping by from the hop. We have a lot of the same taste in books. I agree with what you said regarding book covers. I hope you have a great weekend!

  9. I'm just stopping by to say hello and wish you a happy Friday. Yeah its finally here! :)I'm an old follower.

    Have a great weekend!!

  10. Hopping by....

    And also seeing your "Follow Friday" favorite brick & mortar bookstore is any rare & used bookstore that is still in business. Since I'm a Golden Age Mysteries junkie (original editions, please), that's the only way I can get them from a "real" bookstore rather than the interwebs.

  11. Just hopping by to share some Friday blog love! Have a great weekend!
